Jonathan’s wide-ranging experience (spanning over 28 years) has given him the ability to explain investments in a simple yet logical fashion, making him a tremendous financial adviser.
Jonathan has always been passionate about providing comprehensive, meticulous financial planning advice, so when he established Beckworth in 2001 he ensured that Beckworth had the most robust and diligent processes and he made it his objective to employ the very best possible team – a team which helps with every aspect of investment management. With Beckworth’s tried and tested 14 years of experience in fund management and helping clients, this clearly demonstrates that his diligent approach is working.CloseNext
Jonathan was born in Exeter and is married to Jane (who is an Ophthalmic Optician) and they have two grown up children. When Jonathan is not out and about seeing clients you’ll find him “on the water” (well, mostly on Exmouth’s floating café) or on his motorbike “green laning” around East Devon.
